Drawing on the rich cultural practices of families from the central desert areas of Australia to the tiny islands off the NT and Qld, a suite of resources (DVDs, posters and planning templates, fact cards, plus a richly illustrated ‘workbook’ that ‘unpacks’ the Early Years Learning Framework) illustrates ways educators might use local activities—including collecting bush foods, hunting, fishing, singing and dancing—in their planning, programming and documenting cycles and during spontaneous and intentional teaching. Importantly, professional learning sessions illustrate ways to build early literacy and numeracy skills using local ideas, materials and ways of knowing, being and doing.
